We travelled in April and decided to schedule the mountain bike tour to the Hoover Dam. Neil, our tour guide was amazing. We also had the privilege of having Gabe, who was in training to be a mountain bike guide. Both gentlemen were knowledgeable of the history of the area and geological terrain. My 17 year old son, who is a History enthusiast, found the guides informative. Totally recommend this tour.

Luke and Flip were excellent guides. They made our ride fun. I think they were as excited as we were when we rode over the dam.Lunch was good also. I really enjoyed eating in the park and seeing the herd of big horn sheep.

Had a fantastic easy bike ride to the Hoover dam, only a couple of very easy hills to climb with the majority all down hill, if you want an off the beaten track visit to the hoover dam this is your trip, stopped off in lots of places getting a different view. Seriously worth the money and time.

Our guide, Antonio, was like a real life ‘Sherpa’. And believe me, we needed his skill, knowledge and instinct. We chose the bike ride without ever considering the potential extreme temperatures. We set out at 8:30am on well-equipped bikes. The ride is mostly downhill and flat but there is one incline that will get your attention. I walked it as I needed to ‘pace myself’ with energy exertion. The ride meanders over all kinds of different surfaces, none of which were difficult to negotiate. There are varying gorgeous views of the mountains and Lake Meade from high above. The tunnels we road through were impressive and full of history. Our guide was impressively informative. We learned a lot about the history of Boulder and the process of building the dam. We took plenty of water breaks and we had plenty of extra water thanks to Antonio. On a side note, we arrived at desert adventures with a flat tire on our rental car. I decided not to worry about until after the outing. When we returned to Desert Adventures in the shuttle van, IT WAS FIXED!!!!! Customer service you ask? Outstanding!! Antonio had arranged for it to be fixed for us. When I say he was a good guy, he took GREAT CARE OF US! We enjoyed the ride very much. Next time we might choose spring time instead of summer but, ah what the heck, it made for a better adventure. Oh, and the dam, well that kind of speaks for itself but having a PRIVATE GUIDE TO NARRATE YOUR TOUR AFTER A 15 MILE BIKE RIDE, PRICELESS. The lunch is the real deal. Very delicious sandwiches with a fruit, veggie with dip, and a huge cookie for dessert. No complaints whatsoever. There you have it. We would definitely recommend this adventure as our family of four (57, 52, 17 and 16) enjoyed it very much. Thank you Antonio and Dessert Adventures.

I can't believe I forgot to write our review when we returned in Oct from Vegas.....but like they say, better late than never. My husband and I totally enjoyed our day of cycling from Boulder City to Lake Mead & through the tunnels to Hoover Dam. It is a fairly easy ride with only a few hills to climb. The views of Lake Mead were awesome. Hoover Dam is a must if you have never been. Tom was amazing, helpful and informative. Everything about this company we experienced was very professional right from our pick up at hotel in Vegas. A company vehicle was waiting for us at the top of Hoover Dam to drop our bikes off. Then we walked a short distance to Hoover Dam where we enjoyed our lunch that had been waiting for us in a cooler inside the vehicle. When you think sandwiches, nothing that great BUT we have to admit the sandwiches were delicious. There was only one other person on our tour so we had a little more freedom and were able to walk to the new bridge which has amazing views of the dam. Would totally recommend this cycle excursion. One other thing. We have rented bikes on many vacations and these are the best bikes we've rented. They were newer bikes and kept in very good condition.

I highly recommend taking this mountain bike tour. The majority of the ride was down hill with just a few difficult up hill climbs. Our tour guide Neal was the absolute best!!! We had so much fun with him, full of information about the area and plants. I had wanted to see big horn sheep in the hills we passed, but they weren't there. Neal knew of a special place were we could see them grazing and took us there on the way back from the dam. All around great guy!!! Lunch and snacks were great too :)

This was a really pleasant way to get to Hoover Dam. Interesting ride with lots of information about the fauna and flora. The fact that it is mainly downhill and off road makes it suitable for all levels of ability. Don't worry the path is very safe to ride on.

Amazing trip, would definitely recommend, don't worry too much about the cycling as its mostly downhill! Bruce was a guide and he was awesome!
